Deadly bombs rock Boston Marathon; explosions kills 2 and 100+ injured

Two explosions struck near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people and injuring dozens of others.

The Boston Policed department also reported a third explosion at the JFK library.

The JFK Library reported on Twitter that a fire had started in a mechanical room of a new building. "All staff and visitors are accounted for and safe. Investigators are investigating. Any tie to Boston Marathon explosions is pure speculation."
